Toni Prinsse - Post 2 - Mod Green Pod

This is a young company established by co-founders Nancy Mims and Lisa Mims, sister-

in-laws. They decided to create their company after discovering that “green” textiles were not a

vailable to design their homes creatively.

For almost a decade Nancy was a successful textile print designer and Lisa u

sed her previous experience as a brand manager for Gillette and a consultant for several fashion start-ups to establish the company. Lisa now consults to Mod Green Pod from her home in England

Mod Green Pod’s fabrics are printed on 100% certified organic cott

on grown in the Untitled States. They weave and print their product line completely in the USA which helps reduce their carbon footprint by reducing energy used in shipping. They are a member of the Organic Trade Association (OTA) and ensure they follow the fiber standards set forth by the OTA. They use low-impact pigment and dyes and com

ply with Global Organic Textile Standards.

They are making their mark on the sustainable design scene by putting a modern twist on the damask, a baroque classic. Their fabrics are hand silk-screened on tables by artists in New England. Their wallpapers are produc

ed from water based inks and

Forest Stewa

rdship Council certified paper.
